- "Not everyone has a happy ending."
- ―Norman Osborn[src]
Norman Osborn was the founder of Oscorp.
Norman Osborn was referenced numerous times as the founder of Oscorp. Osborn was suffering from some sort of sickness and dying from it; the reason why Dr. Connors was developing a new serum was to not just regrow his missing arm, but find a way to save Osborn as well.
When Norman was close to death his son Harry returned from his travels to assume the role of CEO of Oscorp if his father was to pass away. After a brief conversation with Harry, where Norman told him that the disease was genetic, Norman passed his son all of his research into a cure. By the next morning, Norman had passed away and Harry filled in his role at Oscorp.
